TERRY JONES, Jr.
The Brice W. Herndon and Sons Funeral Homes and Crematory
Terry Allen Jones, Jr., 48, resident of Abercrombie Pointe, husband of Heather Simmons Jones, died Sunday, July 23, 2017 at Hospice House after winning a courageous 18 month battle against pancreatic cancer.
Born in Walterboro, June 18, 1969, he was a son of Terry Allen Jones, Sr. and Debra Barry Jones. Terry was employed by Blyth Funeral Home and Oakbrook Memorial Park in Greenwood and was a member of the First Baptist Church. Terry was also a Shriner and Mason.
Husband to Heather Lea, father to Cowboy, a true Tiger, and fast friend to everyone he met, Terry’s infectious smile and big hugs will be missed by so many.
Terry was the first one to pull a joke on someone and always trying to make people laugh. Terry loved to hunt and fish mostly because of the people he did it with. With the voice of an angel, Terry moved people with his gift and talent.
From bull riding to shagging, Terry always got every second out of life. Terry loved out loud and got it right. Because our love for Terry was so big, our loss is so great, but knowing God loved him the most brings us comfort.
Terry demonstrated a life of richness, courage, faithfulness to his Creator, adoration of his family and through his journey strengthened others’ faith and relationships. Terry never once complained during his battle and met each new day with gratitude.
Surviving in addition to his wife of the home, his father of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and mother of Round O, is his son, Terry Allen “Trace” Jones, III of the home; a brother, William Thomas (Beth) Jones of Gaffney; a sister, Alexandra Corie Jones; step-mother, Deb Michaels Jones, both of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida; uncle, Joe Barry of Round O; two aunts, Kathy (Paul) Martin of Round O, and Cindy (Bill) Berl of New Smyrna Beach, Florida; a nephew, Reid Jones along with a number of cousins.
